to speaker boehner yesterday he is reading reports that the president is trying to slow walk this thing. listen to the speaker. >> when it comes to the fiscal cliff that's threatening our economy and threatening jobs, the white house has wasted another week. >> there are a lot of things that are possible to put the rev that the president seeks on the table, but nope of it is going to be possible. the president insists on his position. insists on my way or the highway. that's not the way to get to an agreement that i think is important for the american people and very important for our economy. >> there you go. so that's what speaker boehner's office is saying. they had a phone call on thursday. but people wondering if they are not even talking at all anymore. >> he said this is no way to an agreement there should be compromise. if you are elected official you should represent all of the united states and you should compromise and hear both sides. >> i think you should go off the fiscal cliff. americans are barreling down the road that's debt. there is a fork in the road. on the left are

that. >> well, you get the republicans the day after election day making good faith offers, boehner breaking with 20 years of tradition says we'll give you revenues, $800 million, and that's a real break for the republicans. that's a peace pipe. what does he get in return? the president sends the treasury secretary, geithner, to boehner and to mcconnell. he pockets the $800 billion. he double ths it and says i want 1.6 trillion. he demand not only no spending cuts of any importance but increased stimulus in spending which is preposterous when you're running trillion dollar deficit. and just to add insult, and here's the insult, he demands congress give up the power to control the deficit. that's obviously meanlt to humiliate the republicans. it's a non-starter. it's not acceptable. it's a way of saying to boehner you want to hand me your sword, you want to hand me your shirt? i want your trousers as well. the white house is not budging, and everybody's waiting, meaning the media, the administration are waiting for republicans to cave. >> look. i agree totally with you and their post

would raise taxes for the wealthiest americans. he met yesterday with house speaker john boehner, their first face to face meeting in more than three weeks. today the president will visit a detroit engine factory to rally support from auto workers. the president's meeting with speaker boehner didn't yield a big breakthrough, but the men did manage to agree on one thing, and that is that they will keep their negotiations behind closed doors. the men released this identical statement, saying this afternoon the president and speaker boehner met at the white house to discuss efforts to resolve the fiscal cliff. we're not reading out details of the conversation, but the lines of communication remain open. cnn's dan lothian is at the white house this morning. dan, i guess the fact that the lines of communication are open is a good sign. >> reporter: that's right. it is a good sign. it was just about a week ago that we were reporting about how nothing was going on, not in public and not in private. aides up on the hill, republican aides telling us there were no phone calls, no e-mails,

, is that speaker boehner will have to make a deal with the president. i think it might be difficult to pass, i think they will have to round up some votes, it could take two, three, or four days for them to pass, for these bills to pass. my sense of it is the speaker will not come out and announce a deal he can't pass. i think by the time the two of them get a deal, the speaker will be pretty certain that between his worship, and nancy pelosi's membership, they can put together a coalition that can pass this thing in the senate which is pretty dominated by democrats. more of a foregoing conclusion. >> and who is coming up on your show to talk about the fiscal cliff today? >> we doctor v two remembers, marsha blackburn, they both have very different views, suppose the speaker gets a deal, and he can't get his folks to sign on. it has happened before as we know. it happened in the grand deal that he and president obama were putting together together before, so how far can the speaker go, before they start to lose too many people. so we'll have them talk about how short or long of a leash the spe

away optimistic. why? >> what's changed from the last debacle speaker boehner has more room within his own ranks. the republicans have done away with the feeling they have to oppose the president because the election is coming and they want to deny him a big victory. there's more room to let the taxes go up if he can get a bigger return on cutting medicare. that's what conservatives want, they come out publicly on "morning joe" saying that we should do that to get a bigger deal, that's part of what's going into the negotiations. the question is whether the president is willing to give up on that. lot of liberals don't want to give too much in the way of medicare cuts. >> one of speaker boehner's guiding principles, being for republicans and conservatives at large raising taxes is not good for the economy. how does speaker boehner go back to his caucus and say i got a good deal even though we did raise taxes on the top earners? >> it come backs to saying what we've been able to do is deal with the spending problem in a dramatic way, deal with entitlement cuts in a dramatic way and lay a
